The Browns will be hoping that drafting York will produce a far different result. Aguayo lasted only a season with the Bucs before being waived.
Last season, with Chase McLaughlin as the starter, the Browns converted only 72.7% of their field goal attempts, the worst mark in the NFL.
York, ESPN's top-rated kicker going into the draft, set an LSU record with 15 career field goals of 50-plus yards. In 2020, he nailed a school-record 57-yard field goal to defeat then-sixth-ranked Florida in the final seconds in the fog.
Browns director of player personnel Dan Saganey said the team was impressed with both York's "mental makeup" and "overall talent level."
"Looking forward to seeing him get a chance to kick in our stadium," Saganey said. "It's going to be fun."
